What is Settlement Support?
Immigrant Services Calgary’s new Online and Community Accessible Newcomer Services (iCANS) offers newcomer services with flexible “blended” options, available both in-person and online.
In addition to serving newcomers in Calgary and the surrounding area, this program’s unique blended service delivery model brings quality and professional settlement services to those who may reside in rural areas with limited access to services, have geographical and mobility-limiting barriers, or simply prefer to access fingertip services from the comforts of their own homes.
